CTMH Featured Products Blog Hop: Embossing Folders

Hello and welcome to another installment of the Close To My Heart (CTMH) Featured Products blog hop,  where we will be sharing inspiration with projects featuring our embossing folders.  Blog hops are a circular kind of thing so if you found your way here from Kim's blog you are in the right place, but you are welcome to jump in anywhere and make the rounds.  There is a complete list at the end of this post in case you get lost along the way.
A few weeks ago I saw a post online talking about an area animal shelter that's getting ready to hold it's annual fundraiser and when I contacted them and explained what I do, they were eager to have some handcrafted thank you cards to send to their donors.  So with that in mind, I knew I really wanted to use the CTMH hearts embossing folder and the circle diffuser (to leave a blank space in the middle of the card) and this is what I came up with.

I used the Artistry Cricut cartridge to cut the dog and cat, the December 2015 Stamp of the Month set Candlelight Garden, to stamp the cat's sentiment, and one of the stamp sets that came with the Artistry cartridge for the dog's sentiment.  To color the individual hearts, I embossed a scrap with the same embossing folder and used my exacto knife to cut out just one heart, and used that as a mask.

And that's all there is to this one.  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out Lauren's blog where she has a fabulous project to share with you.  Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!  ~~  Annette
